Esthetics of the self timer and other works with found images

Solo exhibition by Maarten Rots, BERM Amsterdam, March 2013.

Rots has made several new installations in the rooms of BERM. These works are based on found slides and images found online.
Rots uses the found footage in a new context, he's combining slides to create new images, and he presents striking repetitives and resemblances in images from different backgrounds.
This results in a beautiful cinematic re-construction of a livingroom from the 70's and a wunderkammer with objets trouvés.

Opening: March 1, 18:00 - 22:00
Exhibition open : March 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17, 12:00 - 17:00
Krugerplein 36-a, AmsterdamOost
